    Hi from tennessee!
    My name is norma and I am the proud owner of 3 horses. 1 of which has had an abscess on her left front foot...i had the vet come out and he took care of the abscess and then told me to soak, put iodine, and wrap the foot for a week. I did everything he told me to do. Then a few weeks later I noticed her hoof looked like it was going to come off so I called the vet once again and told him what was going on and he said it sounds like her hoof blew out in the back but it would be fine as long as she wasnt limping (which she isnt) he also said she had a new hoof growing. I was just wondering if you as a farrier had ever seen anything like this before. I have a few pix if you want to see them just let me know.

    It would be good if I could see some pictures. It does sound like your vet is correct but I will know more with the pics.

    Ok I've posted some pix of her hoof on my profile. I hope this isnt serious...my vet wasnt really concerned with it he said as long as she wasnt limping she would b fine but to keep putting iodine on the hoof!
    Please let me know if you have seen this before!

    Yes I have seen this before, molly should be just fine. It will take time to grow out but in the long run it will not hurt her. I looks to be a where an abscess came out. You will hit a point where her heel will almost "fall off" but there will be new good heel by the time you get there. Just make sure she get good farrier work on a regular bases.

    Equus717 Thanks it has been fun so far.

    Thanks david! I trust the vet I have but he was only going by what I told him over the phone. I thought maybe a second opinion couldnt hurt!
    Thanks again!
